1998 MG F VVC 1.8i 145 bhp from UK and Ireland
Poor effort, the worst MG to buy, stick to a classic
Service history supplied, with head gasket replaced and recalls completed.
Won't tick over correctly.
Poor diagnostic package by now defunct manufacturer.
Won't rev up to manufacturer's claims.
Fuel consumption is poor.
Suspension soft / cornering is poor.
Steering has no road feel.
Hand brake useless; new pads have been fitted.
Door hinge bushes appear to have disintegrated.
Screaming alternator / AC belt, poor adjustment access.
This car is a complete joke! I could have made a better MG with wood, cardboard, and a set of Silver Cross pram wheels.
I have owned a number of sports cars, British as well as foreign, and this is a poor example. I only wish I hadn't bought it now; egg on my face everyone!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
